Snowdonia Engagement Shoot

Or: what makes a North Wales Wedding Photographer ridiculously happy!

Let’s meet Jimmy & Alice. They’re both in the Navy and crazy in love :)

We first met when I shot Dan & Nikki’s beautiful Cleveleys wedding last summer. I guess they must have liked my approach to all things Wedding Photography as it’s now 6 months on and here we are, four days after Christmas in beautiful Snowdonia hanging out together for their very own Snowdonia Engagement Shoot, happy days!

Having had loadsa beautiful sunsets just before Christmas I was really hoping for another good one but I guess we were lucky that the fog had lifted…

The views from Llanberis are stunning!

We took a little hike and ended up overlooking Llanberis which is never a bad thing. 

We bumped into quite a few dog walkers and I don’t know if this makes me a total nerd but I spotted a group of dogs socialising behind us and suddenly thought *I totally recognise that dog*. Turns out I was right (love it when that happens!) and it was Cluanie, a search dog from Search & Rescue Dogs Association Wales, and her humans out for a leg stretch.

After a quick hello we carried on with our walk and I learnt from Alice that Jimmy had proposed in Dubai, how romantic! It’s really easy to see why they work together so well as a couple as the whole time we were out & about they never stopped smiling at each other and I really like that in a couple. Plus it makes my job super easy. I’m already super excited about their Navy-themed wedding in summer and our trip to Portsmouth in the van :)

If you or someone you know is looking for a North Wales Wedding Photographer or a Portsmouth Wedding Photographer feel free to point them my way, happy to help!

I’m a Cheshire, North Wales, Anglesey, Snowdonia & Shropshire Wedding Photographer based near Llangollen in North Wales. My style is natural, relaxed and emotive and most couples that book me are laid-back and want their wedding photographer to fit in with their exciting plans without being bossy. If you like my work and would like to discuss how I can help with your wedding photographer you can contact me here.

Denbigh Wedding Photographer There's something about a glorious sunset in the hills that I just keep coming back for.

Pre-Wedding Shoot in the hills of North Wales Considering they are my fittest couple to marry this year, things got off to a somewhat slow start for this pre-wedding shoot in the hills of North Wales. There'd been a road accident and so I had to go on a 45-minute diversion. While I normally enjoy spending a full sunset with my couple, by the time I finally got to our destination the sun was already pretty low down. Luckily, Steve & Claire were happy to wait for me and so we were able to spend some time together while talking about their exciting wedding plans and getting used to being comfortable in front of the camera. They both enjo ...
